This is a very easy recipe that only uses a handful of ingredients and tastes wonderful! Lemon and gingerbread are a perfect combination together. This icing also dries hard and shiny, so it is perfect for gingerbread men. Try it, you won't be disappointed! Make sure that you use FRESH lemon juice, not the bottled kind. It will affect the flavor!

What a simple, yet refreshing flavor this icing has! I needed to photograph some store-bought gluten-free gingerbread spice cookies, so I made this icing to use in some of the photos and I could barely get the photos taken before my family ate them all up! :)
